Indians to give Bryan LaHair a shot
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2014) Former National League all-star first baseman Bryan LaHair has been signed by the Indians and invited him to big league camp for spring training. The 31-year-old LaHair played in Japan last season.
LaHair performed well enough in 2012 to earn a spot in the All-Star Game before a second-half collapse. He batted .230 with 16 home runs and 57 in 348 at-bats with the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks in 2013.
The Indians could have an opening for a left-handed batter at designated hitter if Carlos Santana takes over at third base.
